Skin rejuvenation refers to a group of cosmetic procedures designed to improve your skin’s appearance and general health.
Your skin is your largest organ. It envelops your body, protecting you from pollution, environmental toxins, viruses, and bacteria. Even though your skin’s tough, it isn’t invincible. It loses its elasticity, develops wrinkles, and becomes increasingly frail as you get older.
Skin rejuvenation provides a safe and effective way to keep your skin vibrant and youthful. And because the treatments are minimally invasive, there’s no downtime or long-term recovery required.
The Adult and Pediatric Dermatology team offers several kinds of skin rejuvenation, including:
A chemical peel is a kind of facial. During treatment, your provider applies a medical-grade solution to your skin. The solution causes the top layer of skin to peel away, revealing the healthier, smoother skin beneath.
Microneedling is an outpatient procedure that involves your provider making microscopic puncture wounds across the surface of your face. Following treatment, the wounds cause your body to produce more collagen and elastin –– proteins responsible for keeping your skin firm and elastic.
PRP is a kind of skin rejuvenation that uses your body’s own growth factors to encourage the production of new skin cells. During PRP, your provider draws a sample of your blood and separates the platelets (growth factors) with a machine called a centrifuge. They inject the solution into your scalp or another area of skin, triggering your body’s healing process.
ZO Skin Health, an Irvine, California, skin care company, offers a line of skin products specifically formulated to restore your skin to a healthy, vibrant state. Following an exam and review of your medical history, your Adult and Pediatric Dermatology provider can recommend the ZO products that align with your needs.
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. When injected beneath your skin, Botox stops nerve signals from reaching the muscles in your face. That allows your muscles to relax, making your skin appear smoother and younger.
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment for sagging skin, thin lips, or noticeable nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers are different from Botox in that they encourage the production of collagen and elastin –– proteins that keep your skin firm and elastic.
To determine the skin rejuvenation treatment that will benefit you most, your Adult and Pediatric Dermatology provider reviews your health history and asks about your goals. After gathering that information, they develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
